St George’s Day 2017

640 members of the Arundel & Littlehampton Scout District, including 76 members of 1st Barnham, paraded through Arundel and up to the Cathedral for the annual St George’s Day celebration on Sunday 23rd April 2017. The parade was led by the District Scout Band and the District standards.

This year 1st East Preston had the task of organising the service for members, invited Mayors, Chairmen and Councillors together with past leaders and “friends” of the Scout District. During the service members of Scouting past and present renewed their Scouting Promise. The service was conducted jointly between Bishop Richard Moth, Canon Tim Madeley of the Cathedral and Rev.

After the service, District Commissioner, Mark Hewson, took the salute as the whole District marched past. Following the parade a leader’s afternoon tea was held at the Arundel Football Club which was organised by 1st East Preston Scout Group.

Amberley Beaver Explore Day

23 Beavers from Barnham and Walberton joined 250 other beavers for a fun pack day exploring the Museum. They made wooden woggles, put up a tent, had a go at printing, went on a nature walk and much more. Everyone enjoyed all the activities but the Beavers said the train and bus ride were the best!
